Attention Spring 2017 Petitioners: If you have filed a 2015 Maryland income tax return, you must submit a Maryland Comptroller's certified copy of that return.

Maryland tax returns that are not certified will not be accepted.
If you are able to document that you meet all the criteria set forth in the policy you may complete this form. A Petition Checklist is also provided to assist you with completing your petition. Please note that this checklist is designed only as an aid and is not a substitute for the requirements stated in the petition or the Board of Regents policy.
